Students doing a PhD in science studies join the Department of Sociology�s international, interdisciplinary community of over 80 research students working on PhDs. We offer supervision for PhDs in all of our areas of expertise regarding cultural imaginaries and material practices of science and technology, including policy analysis, new genetic technologies, environment, health and medicine, and information and communications technologies. Students will be assigned PhD supervisors (normally 2) whose current active research interests and expertise matches their chosen topic. Close working relations are enjoyed with other departments at Lancaster, and in many cases there is cross-departmental supervision.
An upper 2nd Class Honours degree, or its equivalent, in a relevant subject, including sociology, geography, philosophy, linguistics, anthropology, science or engineering, and a viable research proposal. For international students: IELTS 7.0 score, or equivalent qualification.
Assessment is via original research and thesis.
